LISTEN TO "FOLLOW MY VOICE"


Nomadic singer-songwriter Julie Byrne, has shared "Follow My Voice," the opening track from her upcoming album, Not Even HappinessStereogum, who interviewed Byrne today and premiered the track, are saying "Byrne is one of the finest contemporary examples of an artist who can do so much for the soul by lending you some of hers."

A more confident beast than her debut, Not Even Happiness adds atmospheric instrumentation and electronic flourishes to Byrne's unusual guitar tunings and fingerpicked melodies, moving the songs from the front-porch into subtle anthemia. Not Even Happiness is available for pre-order now and due out January 27th via Ba Da Bing Records in North America and Basin Rock in Europe. 

Julie Byrne has also announced a record release show on 1/27 at Rough Trade NYC. Details below.

PRAISE FOR JULIE BYRNE:
"With grace and acuity, Byrne shows how the most commonplace aspects of life can turn supernatural if you tilt your eye a way, how the simplest things-melodies, open space, the sky-are often the strongest." - Pitchfork

"With her softly echoing guitar and slight strings, Byrne channels some ancient wavelength, then suddenly sticks a pin in the universal." -NPR

"So perfect it's hard to believe it's real... Songs that feel complete, fully formed, as if they came to us via nature." -USA Today

"Layers of acoustic guitar and self-harmonies hitting like the water and the sky meeting, violins threading between them like ships against the horizon." - Consequence of Sound
